Premises Liability Lawsuits — When Dangerous Conditions Cause Harm

“Premises liability” claims are commonly referred to as slip-and-fall cases. In these lawsuits, the property owner carries the iability for accidents that occur on their property. Under Texas law, property owners have a responsibility to take certain actions that prevent harm from occurring.

If they fail to do so and if harm occurs as a result, property owners may be held liable and required to compensate injury victims for that harm. Examples of this type of liability include when store owners fail to clean up after a spill or when hotel owners fail to notify guests that they are located in neighborhoods known for violent crimes.

You may have the right to compensation if you have been injured on another’s property. Our premises liability attorneys can help you understand how Texas law may apply to your case, and we can help you decide what action to take.
